Is it possible to:
capture a masked picture of a webcam : I want to make a mask like an OVAL (to insert my face) and take a snapshot of my webcam

Any clues how to achieve this ?

Are you able to make the webcam snapshot yourself?
If so, you can quite easily add a layer with a mask using the Graphics32 project: http://www.graphics32.org/wiki/

My project is:
put a webcam image into an OVAL mask picture (Like taking a snapshot webcam picture into a head shape oval).
Sorry for my poor explanation and my poor english:
I want people to make webcam snapshots of their FACE: so I need to put an OVAL mark so they put their head inside:
- It can be overlayed (over the webcam image) : trouble is the webcam is always ON TOP of the image !
- or the webcam image can be Oval shaped: I do not know how to do it !

I tried Graphics32 but i never get a transparent image neither
In both cases I am STUCK...
Any Idea on how to achieve this ?
check this link.
i think this link will help you to make transparent Control(TWinControl) by setting the Window region.
